Christmas is just around the corner and if you are anything like us, you’re probably wondering ‘how is it that time of the year already?’. With so many incredible experiences and presents at your fingertips, we’ve put on our elf hats and created a list of gifts you can give the family this Christmas.

A gift for the foodies

Tantalise the taste buds with a gift from Cha Cha Chocolate where novelty sweets are plentiful. Choose to fill a basket full of old-fashioned chocolate favourites and delicious fudge or take your gift to the next level with an exquisite gift basket.

TIP: Why not purchase a voucher to their favourite restaurant or entice them to try somewhere new? With Water St Kitchen and Berts Restaurant offering up vouchers, make this Christmas one worth remembering.


A gift for the out-of-towners

For the relatives out-of-town, treat them to the iconic flavours of Bundy. Whether it’s purchasing them a bottle of their favourite blend from Bundaberg Rum or introducing them to new flavours, pop into the abundant cellar doors of Ohana Tropical Winery and Cheeki Tiki Cider, Kalki Moon Distilling and Brewing Company, Vintners Secret, Hill of Promise Winery or Waterview Distillery, for a thirst-quenching treat.  

TIP: Got some Bundaberg Rum lovers in the family? Give them a reason to visit with a behind the scenes tour of their favourite spirit on a Bundaberg Rum Distillery Tour.


A gift for the adventure-seekers

With the Southern Great Barrier Reef just a stones throw away from our coastline and effervescent waters hugging our shores, give the gift of adventure on the water this Summer. For the dreamers who have always wanted to learn how to kiteboard, Undertow Surf & Kite offer a range of lessons perfect for that last minute Christmas gift. For the wannabe scuba and open water divers, Turtle Town Scuba offer beginner lessons to help you explore the undiscovered areas of the big blue. 

TIP: Give the ultimate adventure on the water gift this Christmas with a Day Trip to the Southern Great Barrier Reef, complete with snorkelling turtle filled waters, scenic island walks, and glass-bottom boat tour with Lady Musgrave Experience or Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort


A gift for the culture kings and queens

Transport history lovers to the pioneering days of Bundaberg with Day Passes to Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Fairymead House Sugar Museum.  A place where imagination soars, unravel the history and adventure of aviation pioneer, Bert Hinkler, and weave your way down the hallways of a 19th century heritage-listed bungalow that shares the stories of the 19th century sugarcane industry.


A gift to make the Grandparents smile

Add a personal touch to your Christmas present to the grandparents with a trip to the Bundaberg Brewed Drinks Barrel where you can get a special family photo stamped onto Australia’s favourite brew, Bundaberg ginger beer.


A gift for the animal lovers

If feeding baby goats, getting a selfie with a red kangaroo or walking through a free-flying aviary is the type of gift to make someone smile this Christmas, why not treat them to a ‘Meet the Animals’ tour of Splitters Farm, Family pass to Snakes Downunder Reptile Park and Zoo, or Flying High Bird Park.  


A gift of nostalgia

Clockwork Curiosities has all your nostalgic gifts and quirky artefacts covered. Whether it’s something given with love to add to a collection, or something small to inspire a flood of special memories, take time this holiday season to stop by this eclectic store in the heart of Childers.


Add something a little extra special

Pop into our Visitor Information Centres in Bundaberg & Childers for a range of local products that will help add that something extra to the present pile. With local made earrings, sweet scented local-made candles, turtle inspired gifts and travel vouchers, there’s a gift to be found for the whole family. And the special part of buying local is that your gifting something extra special back into the community as well as your family.


From our Bundaberg Region turtle loving family to yours this Christmas, we hope you have a very merry and festive holiday season, wherever you are this year.

A Very Merry Burnett Christmas
Unique Southern Great Barrier Reef
